And here’s the full dialogue text of The Last Jedi trailer:

Snoke: When I found you, I saw raw, untamed power. And beyond that, something truly special.

Rey: Something inside me has always been there. But now it’s awake. And I need help.

Luke: I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.

Kylo: Let the past die. Kill it if you have to. That’s the only way to become what you were meant to be.

Chewie: Raawwwarr’arrrrr!

Porg: Aieee! Aieee!

Poe: We are the spark that’ll light the fire that’ll burn the First Order down.

Finn: Come on!

BB-8: Bewow.

Luke: This is not going to go the way you think.

Snoke: Fulfill your destiny.

Rey: I need someone to show me my place in all this.
